Speed Rating
Load Index
Load Range


Safety Rating is a combination of two values: Load Index and Speed Rating for P-Metric and Euro Metric tire sizes; and Load Range and Speed Rating in the case of heavy duty LT (light truck) sizes.

Speed Rating is based on the speed that the tire is designed to be driven at for extended periods of time. All tires in the in the U.S. are designed to maintain legal U.S. speed limits. The speed rating of tires must match the maximum driving speed of the vehicle.

Load Index is used on P metric and Euro Metric sized tires and denotes a tire's load-carrying capacity at a specified inflation pressure. The load index is represented by a number, the higher the Load Index Value the greater the load the tire can safely carry. Vehicle manufacturers recommend a maximum load capacity based on a recommended minimum load index.

Tire Class


Tire Class reflects how the tire will be used. There are four major categories: All-Season, Max Performance, Summer-Only and Winter-Use.

All-Season tires are suitable for year-round driving in all weather conditions.

Summer-Only & Max Performance tires are specifically designed for high-performance driving. Tire compound, tread design and speed ratings all combine to hug the road and maintain grip. Summer tires by nature are not ideal for winter driving due to lack of siding to grip winter roads.

Winter-Use tires have tread compounds and patterns that are specially designed for grip on snowy or icy road surfaces. They are not suitable for year-round use. The rubber compound used will wear more quickly on dry, summer roads. It is recommended that winter tires are fitted as a complete set to avoid potential handling issues.

Tread Type


Tread Type is an important consideration when choosing a tire. There are four main types: Passenger, Highway, All-Terrain and Mud-Terrain.

Passenger denotes a tread that is suitable for normal use, a good all-round tread for normal driving.

Highway is a tread type unique to SUV and truck tires. The tread is optimized for normal everyday driving on paved surfaces. These tires can be driven off pavement, but are not ideally suited for off road traction. Highway tread patterns deliver a quiet ride.

For light trucks and specialty vehicles, All-Terrain tread types provide better off-road traction than standard highway truck tires. There more aggressive tread tends to be less quiet on paved roads. All Terrain tires are suitable for everyday use.

Mud-Terrain treads are specifically designed with wider tread blocks and higher void ratios to gain traction in off-road conditions. Mud Terrain tires can generate higher noise levels and tend to carry lower mileage warranties than other tread designs.

UTQG - Uniform Tire Quality Grade

UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) is made up of three values: treadwear, traction and temperature.

Treadwear is a relative numeric score, based on manufacturer tests, showing how well a tire can be expected to wear compared to other tires. A higher score means a tire could be expected to wear better.

Traction measures the tire's ability to stop a vehicle on wet roads. It doesn't reflect a tire's acceleration, cornering, or hydroplaning performance. Traction grades range from AA (highest) to C (lowest).

Temperature grades the tire's ability to withstand heat build-up, with A being the highest grade and C the lowest.

A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 to 115 mph
C - Between 85 to 100 mph
Treadwear: 400
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47
B - Above 0.38
C - Less Than 0.38
A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 and 115 mph
C - Between 85 and 100 mph

Drive / Ride Performance Characteristics

All tires have the following six performance characteristics, divided into three sets of trade-offs. In most cases, a tire may perform excellently in one characteristic but only standard in the other.
Standard Ride Comfort & Standard Handling
Handling: Get stiff side wall for precise steering and cornering but settle for a firm ride with increased road noise.
Ride Comfort: Enjoy a quiet, smooth ride but lose some cornering ability.
Standard Treadwear & Standard Traction
Traction: Stop faster in wet conditions but expect a shorter tread life.
Treadwear: Get long, uniform wear across your tread pattern but expect less traction in wet conditions.
Standard Low Rolling Resistance & Standard High Speed Performance
High-Speed Performance: Get increased performance at higher speeds but sacrifice some fuel economy.
Low Rolling Resistance: Enjoy improved fuel efficiency but expect less high-speed cornering ability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by I have experienced these ... I have experienced these tires on numerous applications. For me the road noise these have doesn't really matter because my car is loud already. I did not know they were very loud until I drove a car that was stock with these tires installed. However, they do handle quite well for a street tire. They aren't the best gripping tire in the market but they hold their own. The higher treadwear was nice compared to some of the other "sticky" street tires. Overall these tires would be good for someone looking for good dry performance with a decent amount of longevity. The wet performance isn't that bad either. November 14, 2010
Rated 3 out of 5 by I have not tracked the ... I have not tracked the car yet so I am not sure how they measure up under extreme conditions; however my opinion of the tire up to this point is good. I plan on buying the same tire this year for the car and would recommend them to a friend for daily drivers or weekend cruisers. As far as recommending them as a track day tire, I can not accurately answer that question. November 14, 2010
Rated 2 out of 5 by Tire noise was the one ... Tire noise was the one big negative about the set that was original equipment on my car. November 13, 2010
Rated 3 out of 5 by Had these tires on my ... Had these tires on my Mustang Bullitt. I was a very spirted driver.The wear on the out edges of the tires seemed to go pretty fast. I was at the wear bars after 9000 miles. They also carried a lot of road noise. I think under normal driving it would be a very good tire. November 13, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tire , handles well ... Great tire , handles well , looks good, just wish tread life would last longer. With that being said i do understand that this is a performance tire and they do not last as long as a regular tire. November 13, 2010

Rated 3 out of 5 by Average tire. I find cold ... Average tire. I find cold weather traction lacking for an all season tire. Although they are decent in snow for a performance tire. In hindsight, I'd rather have separate dedicated summer and winter tires. November 12, 2010

Rated 4 out of 5 by As a big proponent of BFG ... As a big proponent of BFG Tires I was very excited to purchase these tires for my wife's Denali. I actually had to wait about 6 months for these tires to come out. I loved the tread design and when mounted on the new wheels they looked great. Since these were first run tires I had to have all four replaced within months of each other for what appeared to be tire chunks coming off. BFG had NO problems replacing my tires at any time, perfect customer service. Once they got the formula down for these tires I never had a problem with them. Ride, and comfort were perfect. No howling. Water siping due to tread pattern was above average so hydroplaning was almost nil. I always got complements on the tires and once they were all replaced with new better rubber worked perfectly. November 12, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by I like the overall ... I like the overall performance in all weather conditions. I drive year round in snow and in rain. November 12, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good overall tire, ... Good overall tire, performed well in all aspects, but not terrific in one. November 12, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by I purchased a set of the ... I purchased a set of the g-force KDWS tires in 255/45/R17 for my 01 Dodge Dakota R/T after being thoroughly impressed with some Mud Terrains for another vehicle. I replaced the Goodyear Eagle GSA tires that came factory. I found that the g-force KDWS tires lasted longer, offered much better dry and wet weather traction all at a lower price. After those two initial experiences with BFG tires given the choice I will pick BFG over other brand tires for their excellent performance. November 12, 2010

When the roads are warm they perform great and even in mild snow and on ice the maintain control. I can't find a better tire on the market thats not a full blown race tire. Will have to buy again when its time. November 12, 2010
